I think the first thing would be to select an inexpensive hardware
reference platform with some longevity.
We selected the Digilent Spartan-3 Board as (a) good fit to the intended
machine, ie a curatorial replacement for the Ceres, not a
super-mega(-giga?)-upgrade; (b) not too expensive; and mainly (c) ETH had
a lot of them. Since this board is now sadly no longer made, the decision
seems a bit unwise, but hindsight is of course 20-20.
